Gameboy Zelda precursor about frogs gets fan translation


10:30 PM on 07.12.2011



For those of you who've never heard of the game, For the Frog the Bell Tolls is a Gameboy title from 1992 that never left Japan. It was created by members of the teams that brought us Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, and Metroid II: The Return of Samus. Fans have been working to translate the game into English for a while, and tonight, their work is done (patch found here.)

I want this game for the music alone, but the copious amount of weird comedy, a narrative focus on "...princes who turn into frogs and snakes, bizarre characters with twisted senses of humor, some underage beatings of fairy tale characters, and a deranged inventor working for a parody of Nintendo" has me feeling pretty good.

Also, the main character appears to be beige, just like me! Way to represent my beige brothers, Nintendo. Now just show some support to the fans who worked hard on that translation patch, and bring their localized version of the game (or better yet, the canceled DX version) to the 3DS eShop.

How exotic! For the Frog the Bell Tolls (Game Boy) [N-Sider]
